workers in detroit and toledo who feared they would never build a another a american car. today they can not rebuild them fast enough because we reinvented an auto industry that is back on top of the world. [cheers] i have worked with business leaders who are bringing jobs back to a america not because our workers make less pay but because we make better products. because we work harder and smarter than anybody else. i signed trade agreements that are helping companies sell more goods to millions of customers. goods stamped with three proud words "made in america." [cheers] [ crowd chanting "usa!"] after a decade of decline, this country created over half of a million of manufacturing jobs in the last two and a half years. now you have a choice. we can get more tax breaks to corporations to ship jobs overseas or reconsider rewarding companies that create new jobs and train new workers here in the united states of america. [cheers and applause] we can help small businesses, double their exports. if we choose this path we can create 1 million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years.
